republican, but the in your blog, you point out that romney will be stumping there in the last four days. is that evidence that the romney campaign doesn't feel that it's in the bag for them and that there could be movement there for the president? >> it's not in the bag, that's for sure. the reason we have it in the republican camp is because it leans slightly republican. one of the reporters down there, adam smith of the tampa bay times says romney probably has a lead in that corridor that often determines florida elections. but at the same time, he says the obama camp has been doing an extraordinary job in mining the maximum out of the heavily democratic south florida area. that could even it out. the reason romney is there is because his lead is very tenuous. i think he does have a lead. but we're talking about a point. we're not talking about three or four points. so that's why you have to keep the pressure up. that's why he's in florida. that's why he's in virginia. frankly, it's why the president is going to was which is and to ohio. it's to keep the pressure on, to keep their nar

voting, and that he lost the election day voting to make romney. so this is not a good sign commend i have been watching this trend for a week. the margins are getting bigger. on tuesday it was 150 some odd thousand. now it is larger than what obama won the state by a in 2008. this is a bad sign for president obama, and we see it reflected in the polls as well. if you take a look, allup says 15 percent of the people had voted early. they were breaking for romney by 52-46. this week to reports 19 percent of those surveyed said they had voted. a break for romney by 50-43. obama won the early vote last time around, according to puke, by 19 points or was winning at this point by 19 points and now he's losing it by seven. that is more than enough to flip the election. lou: two things, if we can go back to your board, immediately apparent command one is that there is a 5-4 margin if i read correctly, democrats over republicans in the early vote in 2008 that ratio was over two times -- two times. >> almost two to one. and we are talking here about less than a 5-4 margin. we are talking abou

romney spending much of their day here in the state of ohio, how important is the buckeye state? so important that betweenq the two of them they will be here five more times over the next three days. charging into the campaign's final weekend, each candidate tried to frame the latest unemployment reports to his advantage, as either a sign of economic progress. >> this morning, we learned that companies hired more people in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> reporter: or stalled growth. >> today we learned it is actually 7.9%, and that is 9 million jobs short of what he promised. >> reporter: analysts say both men make valid points. >> there is no question we came out of the lull, where the economy stalled, we've pushed away from it, the bad news it is pretty low. >> reporter: mr. romney indicted his opponent's record. >> candidate obama promised change but couldn't deliver it. i promise change, but i have a record of achieving it. >> reporter: and in four days, promised a fresh start. >> i'll lead america to a better place, where confidence in the future is certai
the 2012 presidential election. four days. president obama and mitt romney, they are campaigning nonstop. and thanks to cnn's vast resources, our crews are spread across the map to cover the candidates' final sprint to the election. we have reporters in the crucial battleground states that will decide the election. and multiple crews in the all-important state of ohio right now. amidst all of this, both presidential candidates were in ohio. and trying to spin the latest jobs numbers to their advantage. the economy added 171,000 new jobs in october. that's more than analysts expected. also, revised figures from august and september show another 84,000 jobs were added more than first reported. those are the revised numbers. the unemployment rate is 7.9%. that's slightly higher than september's 7.8%. our chief business correspondent ali velshi is in toledo, ohio, in that battleground state, ali, what are they saying over there? how are these numbers likely to play out if at all on the campaign trail? >> reporter: well, you know, ohio's interesting. not only is it a tight race and one of the
, guess what? it feels really close. that's why the president's here all day today. governor romney's here tonight with some stars of the republican party, local republicans think they'll have 35,000 people at that rally tonight. that's in the southwest corner of ohio. what they say is that both candidates right now are keeping their bases pretty strong. if you look at the cleveland area, the president runs strong. if you look across the industrial part of the northern part of the state, you see evidence the auto bailout is helping the president. down here in the cincinnati area, southwest ohio, governor romney is ahead in the polls. and that's significant. barack obama carried hamilton county, where i am, four years ago. if hamilton county is blue on election day, the president will win ohio and most likely be re-elected. at the moment the romney team thinks it can hold onto this state -- onto this part of the state. so it's just a feisty fight it all out intensity try to churn turnout. the romney campaign considers it a dead heat and believes it can make up the intensity on election day.
